Abstract

We have described the contiguous placement in the previous chapter and the statistical strategy to place objects on disks in Chapter IV. In this chapter, we describe the statistical strategy to place them on hierarchical storage systems. The objective of the data placement methods is to minimize the time to access object from the hierarchical storage system. The statistical strategy changes the statistical time to access objects so that the mean access time is optimal. The objective of the frequency based placement method is to differentiate objects according to their access frequencies. The objects that are more frequently accessed are placed in the more convenient locations. The objects that are less frequently accessed are placed in the less convenient locations. We will describe the frequency based placement method in the next section. Afterwards, we will analyze its performance. Last, we summarize this chapter.
